    The third picture seems to show that the bike is pretty heavy. However, because one of the wheels is at a lower level it is hard to say if the rider is actually using a lot of strength to move the bike. With that being said, I don't know which on of the two models (CBR500R or CBR500F) I would pick.

    I wonder why they designed it not to have double discs..

    This bike seems awesome. I'm really hoping I can get one soon. I hope it is as reliable as other Honda bikes too.

    I'm sure it is. As it is still a CBR, just the newest in the series..

    105 mph top speed. I hope to go as fast as 100 on the highway once. Really difficult to find open roads these days.

    This is a very nice bike. Also the price tag is very nice as well. It is very affordable and you get great value for what you are paying. I am impressed with Honda still because they continue to release awesome motor bikes. Looking forward to the future of this company.
